Visiting Wyoming’s Oldest Soda Fountain Is Like Taking A Trip Back In Time

Relative to much of the country, Wyoming is a rather ‘new’ state. That being said, you can still find plenty of old fashioned gems out here, and the oldest soda fountain in Wyoming is one treasure you’ve got to visit.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

The Chugwater Soda Fountain is located at 314 1st St, Chugwater, WY 82210, north of Cheyenne. They’re open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

If you’re wondering about the name Chugwater, well, it’s apparently the sound Bison made when they were driven off a nearby cliff, and landed in a river! Read more about Wyoming’s silliest town names, here.
